Food Monday ~ Apple & cinnamon Fingers

Apple & Cinnamon Fingers
Preheat the oven to 180°C
6 ozs Self raising (cake) flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
6 ozs soft butter
6 ozs caster sugar
3 eggs beaten
12 ozs dessert apples, peeled, cored & grated

Topping :
12 ozs dessert apples, peeled, cored & grated
1 tablespoon of lemon juice
3 ozs caster sugar

Sift the flour, baking powder and ground cinnamon into a mixing bowl or food processor, then add the remaining cake ingredients except the apples.
Beat together until light & fluffy (I remember doing this by hand. 🙁 ), then stir in the grated apple.
Spoon the mixture into a greased and lined 7×11 traybake tin and spread evenly.

To make the topping:
Mix the grated apples with lemon juice and scatter over the cake mixture & sprinkle with the sugar.
Bake for 45 minutes or until the cake is firm to touch.
If the cake begins to brown to quickly, cover loosely with a layer of greaseproof.
Leave to cool for 15 minutes in the tin, then carefully remove and strip away the lining paper. When cold cut into rectangles.
